The choice of a plastic surgeon for breast explantation surgery is a decision that will have a significant impact on the life of the patient for several years to come, if not her whole life. A successful surgery will give meet the patient’s expectations as long as it is performed by a skilled and experienced breast surgeon.
The possibility of poor results will increase in the hands of a relatively inexperienced or a less qualified surgeon. This may lead to additional costs, time loss, and disappointment for the patient.
Patients looking for breast implant removal should carefully identify their cosmetic surgeon because any mistake on that front could potentially lead to various unwanted cosmetic and health outcomes, complications in surgery, and added costs associated to revision surgeries.

Make a Well-Considered Decision
Once you have chosen a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience in breast explantation, you should proactively participate in the initial consultation to make sure your surgeon comprehends your desires and expectations. You should ask the surgeon about how many en bloc or total capsulectomy surgical procedures they have undertaken in the past.
You may also request to speak with one of the previous patients of the surgeon who has undergone en bloc capsulectomy to know about her experience. You may ask for breast implant removal before and after pictures of the cosmetic surgeon’s own patients.
It is essential that you and your surgeon are on the same page about your concerns for the surgery. You could list down your areas of concern and bring the list with you to your initial consultation. This way you will not forget to discuss any of your key questions or seek important clarifications during the consultation with your surgeon.
Why Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Patients should preferably work with an American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) certified plastic surgeon for their breast implant removal procedure. A large number of people are wrongly informed that state medical board certification is a sufficient indication of the skills and qualifications of the surgeon.
In reality, it is not a legal requirement for surgeons to be trained in the precise surgical procedures that they offer to patients. Therefore, it makes sense to work with an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon because of the rigorous requirements of this certification.
On the completion of their training, these surgeons are required to submit to the board documentation on cases that they have undertaken. In addition to this, the board also demands that surgeons take renewal exams every ten years to maintain their certification.
Board certified plastic surgeons will usually invest in high quality standards and best medical practices, adopt state-of-the-art surgical procedures, pursue continuing education, and follow the modern safety protocols to deliver outstanding and safe surgical results to their patients.
You should try to work with a doctor who is friendly and makes you feel at ease. You are likely to feel more satisfied with the final outcome if you select a doctor with whom you share a good rapport.
